The good news - Caitlyn qualified for the Head Start Preschool Program
The bad news - It is MANDATORY that she attends 5 days a week from 7:30-11:30
So we obviously are not going to be going with the Head Start Preschool - bummer.
I called Child Action after getting off the phone with the director at Head Start. They took all of our info and were able to give me a list of several preschools in our town, both Child Care Centers and Family Centers. Well, the good news here is that there are so many near us, the bad news is that most of them run about $150 a week for part time - way more that we wanted to or are willing to spend. Back to square one. I then decided to do my own looking. We have some playgroup friends that are in a preschool program through our local parks and rec department. So I called the office and got some info about their program. There are several different school sites where they run these preschool programs. The one our friends go to is a 3 day a week program, however we are just looking for a 2 days per week. Luckily one of the other school runs one that fits our needs and it's only $18 a day - for a month it's roughly about $145, a much better sounding number. We're going to make a visit to the site to check them out and see if it is something that will work for us. Wish us luck (again)!!
On another note, Caitlyn qualifies for Speech Therapy and we will be starting this coming Friday. I'll let you know how it goes.
